I see myself and Daniel have kinda fallen into good-cop, bad-cop mode.

I agree with everything Daniel had said in here, and come next week I might
try and write something more constructive up, but believe me Daniel is totally
right! It's Saturday morning, I've got a weekend to deal with and I'm going to
try and avoid thinking too much about this.

I actually love bandwidth_calcs.c I'd like to merge it even before DAL, yes
it's ugly code, and it's horrible but it's a single piece of hw team magic, and
we can hide that. It's the sw abstraction magic that is my issue.
